Since his first solo exhibition in 1980, Ken Done has become one of Australia’s most renowned artists. His work has been described as ‘the most original style to come out of Australia’, and his paintings are in collections throughout the world. Done has held over 100 solo shows, including major exhibitions in Australia, Europe, Japan and the USA.
His works have been shown in Archibald, Sulman, Wynne, Blake and Dobell Prizes. In 1992, Done received the Order of Australia (AM) for services to Art, Design and Tourism. In many parts of the world, Ken Done has come to symbolise Australia and Australians – creative, optimistic and bold.
The Ken Done Gallery and Tweed Regional Gallery present a new and vivid exhibition of mostly unseen works. It represents many of the artist’s favourite and best-loved subjects – the beach, the reef and portraiture, as well as his own personal environment – his garden and cabin studio in Sydney. A selection of works from the new publication Ken Done: Art Design Life will also be shown.
A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative in partnership with the Ken Done Gallery.
